Gwynne is a Scottish-based Canadian choreographer and multi-disciplinary artist working across performance, installation, text, printmaking, painting, textile, and assemblage. With a focus on place and personal geography, her work centers on the exploration of memory and lived experience.
Gwynne grew up on the traditional unceeded territory of the Lheidli T’enneh in Northern BC.
She is interested in how we encounter and experience our surroundings, and how we can use the body to re-contextualise, re-construct, and re-embody a sense of place. Having trained formally in visual arts, creative writing, and dance, Gwynne’s current work is founded in contemporary movement and performance, with strong influence from literary and conceptual art practices.
